Publisher's description: From 1951 to 1969, John Brinckerhoff (J. B.) Jackson founded, edited, and published Landscape, a magazine that changed the way scholars, writers, teachers, designers, planners, and artists came to understand the everyday places that surround us and influence us in fundamental ways. Then, as a lecturer at Harvard University and the University of California, Berkeley, Jackson further pioneered "landscape studies," a field through which he continues to inspire those who study and interpret landscapes, whether urban, rural, suburban, social, or wild. Drawn to Landscape is the first book to present fully the many aspects of Jackson's career. Including original essays by those who not only knew him best but who have carried his torch to new heights in their own respective work, the book sheds valuable light on Jackson's life and oeuvre, from the time of his childhood to his death in 1996, as well as on his many legacies that remain today.
